“Players have travelled from as far away as East Malaysia to compete for the prestigious title of Golf Malaysia Irons Challenge! One of the most asked questions of any golfer in this tournament is: ‘What type of club should I play with?’ Until you are forced to leave your longer clubs behind, you will soon know which iron to use in which situation and how far you are able to hit each club,” said Juliana Cheah, the Publisher of Golf Malaysia Magazine.
Supported by several sponsors such as TaylorMade Golf the Official Equipment Provider,
golfers must leave their drivers and fairway woods behind, as the only legal clubs to carry in their bags are conventional irons from 1-9 irons, wedges and putter, plus a bonus club, as in a hybrid-iron of a minimum 16-degree lofts. Players, however, are not allowed to use utility-woods or iron-woods.
